Alaska Airlines has launched another Mileage Plan miles sale with up to a 50% bonus through September 16, 2023.
Alaska Airlines joined Oneworld in March 2021, and you can redeem miles with alliance airlines, although a comprehensive award chart is still missing. Alaska also has ties with several non-Oneworld partners, including Singapore Airlines, Korean Air, and Condor.
You can access Alaska’s web page for buying and gifting miles here.
IMPORTANT: Alaska’s offers are often targeted at various bonus amounts, and you can find yours here.
Alaska Airlines has instituted a maximum number of miles that non-elite members can purchase yearly (150,000). However, MVP, MVP Gold, and MVP 75K can continue purchasing miles without any limits (you have to make several purchases).
Price at 50% bonus:
An Alaska Airlines mile purchased at the 50% bonus level costs 1.97 cents each.
Alaska Airlines miles are helpful for partner awards on premium cabins on airlines such as Singapore Airlines, Cathay Pacific, and JAL. However, there have been changes in many partner awards over the past couple of years, so check the number of miles required if you have not redeemed recently.
Alaska’s promised comprehensive partner award chart is still missing, and you cannot redeem awards for many routes, and mixing and matching partners is an issue.
These mileage sales usually max at 60%, although they had one 70% bonus in 2020. So if yours is less than 60%, I would wait for a better sale.
Here are the terms and conditions of this offer:
Transactions must be completed between 6:00 AM PT September 13, 2023 and 11:59 PM PT September 16, 2023 to be eligible for bonus miles.
Miles are purchased from Points.com Inc. for a cost of $27.50 per 1,000 miles, plus GST/HST for Canadian residents and QST for Quebec residents.

You may purchase and gift Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan miles in increments of 1,000 miles up to 60,000 miles, and in increments of 5,000 miles up to a maximum of 100,000 miles per transaction.
MVP, MVP Gold, MVP Gold 75K and MVP Gold 100K Mileage Plan member (Elite Member) accounts have no annual limit on the number of miles which may be purchased or gifted through Points.com. If you are not an Elite Member, your account may only be credited up to a maximum total of 150,000 miles acquired through Points.com in a calendar year, whether purchased by you or gifted to you. Bonus miles do not count toward the maximum total of 150,000 miles.
